RGBA4444 and RGBA8888 have the same texture memory?


I saved the same image as RGBA4444 and RGBA8888, but they have the same texture memory. :thinking:

In theory, RGBA4444 should have only half the memory.

I saw the 2012 article Solar all uses RGBA8888.

But in 2016 @vlads mention,
“Corona uses various texture formats depending on a platform. Not all textures are represented as RGBA8888.”

I want to know if there are other formats, or are they still in RGBA8888 format?

Thank you.

Solar2D concerts all textures when reading them to rgba8888.

Thanks for your clarification.

So I will continue to use low-quality Png-8 instead of pursuing Png-32’s RGB4444 :heart_decoration:
